Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

We are counting down the days, 9 sleeps to be exact before we load up all our goods and hop aboard the plane. 
Wooohoooo!  The suitcase is Zipppped and weighed (In China the luggage weight requirements are more stringent and much more enforced).  This is so stressful, I admit that I am an over-packer, I can't help it. Good thing there are strict requirements, it would be so easy for me to pack 2 times as much.  Only about 25% of this is clothes for 4 people for 14 days, the rest is Medicine, diapers, formula, bottles, sippy cups, toys, blankies, comfort food snacks ( I like shrimp flavored chips as much as the next guy, but sometimes you just need some trail mix and instant oatmeal, oh, and M&M's and skittles for baby bribery)Test run on Skyp*!  Check out the photo below of Mina Cracking herself up, doing her Little Rascals, Alfalfa/Froggy impersonation.  Such the performer, she loves a captive audience!

I'm so excited for you I can hardly stand it. When we went in August, we took 1 suitcase each and boy, could I have used a few more things for the baby! New mom syndrome. Can't wait to see your new daughter! Monica
